We keep hearing about the moderate Muslims who do not agree with violent jihad. Obama lectures that the best way to fight terrorism is to engage the help of the majority of peace-loving Muslims. I’m sorry but by my reckoning the score on that front is about 500 million to four. That’s right I said four.
Quite honestly very few so-called moderate Muslims are standing up to counter the ever-more popular jihad theme. Some that do are Dr. Zudhi Jasser, Raheel Raza and more recently Dr. Nidal Al Sayyed and Dr. Tawfik Hamid.
Al Sayyed agreeing with Trump’s temporary halt to Muslim immigration was rewarded by being fired from his job as religious director of the Islamic Society of Triplex in Texas.
Dr. Zudhi Jasser, founder & president of American Islamic Forum for Democracy has just recently started the Muslim Reform Movement, but he lives under death threats.
Raheel Raza, is a Muslim who has dedicated the last twenty years to fighting radical Islam. Raza reports that twice as many British citizens are fighting for ISIS than are fighting in the British Armed Forces!
Dr. Tawfik Hamid, a physician and former radical Islamist, says we must deny terrorists any semblance of a Caliphate and also criminalize the teaching of radical forms of Islam that result in violence.
But the PC mentality reins. They won’t profile and the administration refuses to authorize investigation of Islamic groups or searching social media as part of the visa review process. San Bernardino likely could have been prevented were that not the case. Once again I have to ask, whose side is he on? They’re certainly NOT looking out for the safety of Americans.
More fun facts from Pew Research after interviewing thousands of Muslims in 39 Muslim countries:
- 27% believe those who leave the faith (apostates) should be executed
- 39% believe honor killings are justifiable for women who have pre or extra-marital sex
- 52% want Sharia law in majority Muslim countries (stoning of women adulterers, cutting off of hands for thieves, and execution of homosexuals)
It’s time for an honest debate about one of the most important issues of our time. Donald Trump has made that possible.
